Peering Policy

We want to do peer in open policy. However, it is difficult for nonprofit organizations to pay for peering costs. Therefore, we make the following peering conditions.

As of December 2017, we are not connected to the Internet Exchange, so we will only connect with private peers.

1.Required condition of peering

It is necessary to satisfy all of the following conditions.

  • Operation information is described in the Peering DB.
    • If you are not using Peering DB, information has been disclosed in other ways.
  • Correct object information is registered in IRR
  • Be able to communicate with network engineers about operational problems.
